Concussion Clinic

About the program

Newport Orthopedic Institute and ImPACT™ are offering concussion management for children and teenagers involved in sports. Read below to learn more about testing and scheduling an appointment. The clinic offers baseline and post-injury neurocognitive tests. Why is this important? Because athletes often hide concussion symptoms and don't know what to look for.

What you need to know

We recommend that all athletes obtain a baseline test prior to participating in sports when they do not have symptoms of a concussion.
